Video: Barge Unloads Cargo in An Extraordinary Way

In British Columbia in Canada, the barge Seaspan Harvester transports and delivers wood in a peculiar technique.

This barge timber uses a novel method to dump its cargo. It capsizes and tilts 30 ° to bring down the timber logs in the water.



Devoid of an engine, this barge is designed to load and unload the goods itself, and  is pushed by the tug Seaspan King.
